Life Saving Award
While off-duty, Sergeant John Sherwood (2nd from right), a resident of West Caldwell, responded to a neighbor’s backyard on June 17, 2016 where he observed an unconscious and unbreathing pregnant female on the ground. Sherwood performed life-saving CPR techniques and after a third cycle of chest compressions the female finally began breathing and regained consciousness. For his actions and initiative, Sgt. Sherwood was presented with a Life Saving Award from Sheriff Armando Fontoura (left) during Police Week ceremonies at Veterans Courthouse on May 17th. Mother and baby are now doing fine. Chief John Dough (2nd from left) and Captain Peter Corbo (right) were also on hand to commend the sergeant.
